Added Jan 27, 2009 at 1:26pmTalk about quality for the price!!! The fruit and elegant finish in this bottle are worth a lot more, and I'm hard pressed to hold on to it, though I feel like it will be even better in about 2 years. This is "good juice."

Added Jan 27, 2009 at 1:22pmBig, dark fruit (cherry-berry) with good structure and long finish. Enough tannins and fruit to think it will last for 7 to 8 years.

Added Jan 27, 2009 at 1:18pmCan't say much for the Price/Value ratio. It is a very nice syrah effort though. very deep color, good fruit, and medium finish.

Added Jan 27, 2009 at 1:11pmIt's not easy to find a high quality cab franc. When I do, I hang on. This qualifies as a VERY good one (though maybe not great). Pride Mountain has a reputation for huge, earthy reds, and this one doesn't disappoint. The fruit and tannins balance nicely and the finish is the full, long one that's characteristic of so many of their efforts.

Added Jan 27, 2009 at 1:02pmSyrah is not the grape that most people associate with Pride Mountain. That said, the results are impressive. The variety of berry fruit that comes through early wins my palate over, and the later vanilla notes soothe for a long finish. I'm holding a few bottles back to try in another 3 to 4 years. Fortunately that leaves some to drink now.

Added Jan 27, 2009 at 12:59pmNot quite the depth and complexity of flavor I've come to expect from Pride's wines. None the less, It still beats a lot of other "big name" cabs in its strength and finish. A little less fruit comes through than usual.

Added Jan 27, 2009 at 12:54pmI was lucky enough to start with a barrel-tasting of this wine on a visit to the winery. It blew me away then and continues to do so now. WS wasn't too optimistic about its longevity when they rated it in 2005, but I think it is drinking as well now as it was then and it seems that it will for at least the next 3-5 years.

Added Jan 27, 2009 at 12:49pmThey've done it again! Merlot's grown at these altitudes and crafted with such skill are hard to find, but Pride seems to have it down to a science. The huge, plummy flavors end with a long, licorice finish.

Added Jan 27, 2009 at 12:44pmHUGE!!! Typical of Bob Foley's efforts at Pride Mountain for several years. Dark, intense berry flavor. Started drinking it in 2007, but expect it to mellow and further improve for at least the next 2-3 years.
